The items Teachers reject pay hike offer CALGARY (CP) - About 4,000 public school teachers have rejected a conciliation board recommendation to move within one step of a strike vote. Officials of local 38 of the Alberta Teachers' Association said permission for the vote would soon be requested from the provincial government. Teachers voted 2,764 to 596 to turn down the recommendation which called for a pay increase of 6.04 per cent retroactive to Jan. 1, 1971, and 6.32 per cent starting Jan. 1, 1972, plus other benefits. The recommendation, approved unanimously by the public school board last Tuesday, was estimated to increase the city's education budget by $3.5 million or 9.97 per cent this year and $3.9 million or 10.25 per cent in 1972. The last contract expired Dec. 31 and provided for wages of between $5,000 and $13,250 a year depending on qualifications, experience and position in the school. Teacher negotiators urged their members to reject the conciliation award, mostly due to its denial of their demands for improved working conditions. Negotiations have been going on for six months.

Humperdinck's wife isn't too perturbed by the collection- "She understands. That's show business." Success has also brought other problems, such as the desire of many fans to grab some of the singer's clothing as a personal memento. LOST PANTS "In New York we didn't finish one concert because of the fans coming on to the stage. They go for the tie first, and then your shirt. I have only, lost my trousers once. That was in Britain." Humperdinck started singing ballads in British working men's clubs when he was 17. Success eluded him, and record companies began to get tired of hearing from a strug- gling singer called Gerry Dorsey. Then in 1966 he met the man who was to steer him on tho road to stardom, Gordon Mills, who managed the meteoric rise of Tom Jones, the singing star from Wales, told Dorsey to change his name to Humperdinck, and soon his first record under the new name was in tho charts. But it was the second, Release Me, which lilt the jackpot, selling five million copies and turning the former Gerry Dorsey into a star overnight.
